Updated corona guidelines have been published

News | 17.9.2020

Updated on 14 February.

 The guidelines supplement the guidelines and recommendations given by the authorities and the University of Turku, which all organisations and students must follow. These guidelines will be updated when necessary.

TYY's guidelines are based on:

  • Discussion with the health authorities of campus cities
  • The guidelines of the hospital district and regulations of regional state administrative agency
  • Discussions with the University of Turku

We have categorised different situations using color codes. Currently, the yellow time guidelines will be followed. 

Current instructions

All events are allowed again and TYY will move to green time

By decision of the Regional State Administrative Agency of Southwest Finland, all public events and general meetings are again possible in Southwest Finland and Satakunta as of 15 February 2022. However, in the premises intended for customers and participants, it must remain possible to organise the activities in such a way that the risk of infection caused by close contact between the participants can be prevented.

TYY moves to green time on 15 February

By decision of the Regional State Administrative Agency of Southwest Finland, public events and general meetings may in the future also be held indoors without a limit on the number of participants. TYY's organisations may also organise events without restrictions on TYY's premises from 15 February.

However, we would like to remind organisations that indoor and outdoor events must continue to be organised in such a way that the risk of infection from close contact is minimised. This obligation can be fulfilled, for example, by limiting the number of participants or the movement of participants in the space, by placing the participants' seats more loosely, by requiring the use of a face mask or by improving ventilation, and by ensuring hand hygiene.

Decision of the Regional State Administrative Agency of Southwest Finland is valid in the municipalities of Southwest Finland and Satakunta from 15 February to 28 February.

TYY will report on the topic next time at the beginning of March.

The university will follow its own plan on corona situation

The University of Turku monitors its own corona plan and communicates any changes caused by the decision of the Regional State Administrative Agency of Southwest Finland. So please follow the University communication.
